    No space left on device?

    Hello I have a problem...
    I am running Linux
    with plenty of disk space and RAM (as far as I know).

    From time to time when viewing a site on my server I get this error:
    ERROR MESSAGE (to user):
    Software error:
    mkdir /tmp/FileCache/ No space left on device at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/Cache/ line 222
    ERROR MESSAGE (logged):
    [error] 8377: ModPerl::Registry: [Sun Jan 15 23:11:48 2006] -e: mkdir /tmp/FileCache/
    No space left on device at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/Cache/ line 222\n
    here is my server stats:

    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda1 521748 495260 0 100% /
    none 517072 0 517072 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda7 65312284 3525056 61787228 6% /home
    /dev/sda5 5119900 1043728 4076172 21% /usr
    /dev/sda6 5119900 1774492 3345408 35% /var

    I think the problem is that I need to allocate more memory to /dev/sda1

    If you think this is the problem as can I increase it?
    Can this affect other things on the system.

    Thanks RedMan, How do I clean up the /temp?

    Will I cause problems if I delete everything that is under /FileCache/ ?

    How can I avoid this?

    Maybe the same problem...

    Here's my df output. What can I do? I'm a total linux noob.

    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    4128448 4128448 0 100% /
    /dev/sda3 194449 27894 156515 16% /boot
    none 1037372 0 1037372 0% /dev/shm

    The problem is that Linux command df -i shows that there are too many files on the filesystem and all the "inodes" are used.

    Look at

    This problems usually occurs with tar, because this is one of the greatest file creating programs

    Check the solutions for your filesystem what to do when out of inodes.

    Hope this helps.
